The past and present lives of two brothers, Frank and Jerry Lee, on the run after a tragic hit-and-run accident, unfold in a novel that captures the world of two young men on the edge of modern society, a world of frustration, bleak economic circumstances, alcohol, and failed dreams. Original.
After Frank Flannigan's halfwit older brother, Jerry, kills a boy in a drunken hit-and-run, the two flee their Reno home and their tough-break upbringing in hopes of leaving trouble behind. However, they can only stay gone so long, and soon they're back, dogged by the inevitability of tragic justice. Country musician Willy Vlautin writes with a bare-bones take-no-prisoners prose that occasionally jolts into unexpected moments of lyricism and humanity.
